Yo, I’ll tell you what Queen Elizabeth II wants, what she really, really wants: A Spice Girls reunion! Four years after their squeal-inducing 2007-2008 “Return of the Spice Girls” tour, rumors have started swirling that Scary, Ginger, Baby, Sporty, and Posh will take the stage together once again. Scary Spice herself, a.k.a. Melanie Brown, addressed the buzz on Australian morning program Sunrise, saying she would definitely be on board when 5 become 1, then she noted coyly, “We do have the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee coming up!” Check out the video (Spice Girls-specific soundbites start around 3:50) below.
“Hopefully we’ll be doing some stuff together,” she said. “I’m always down for a Spice Girls reunion. For me to get my Scary hair on and my big platforms — [I’d do it] any time of day. I’m a Spice Girl through and through.”
It will be a very busy year for the Girls regardless. Their jukebox musical, Viva Forever, is on its way to a West End premiere. Mamma Mia producer Judy Craymer directed it, and Absolutely Fabulous funny lady Jennifer Saunders has reportedly been been involved in the development of the book.
